It's easier to demonstrate than to describe, but in brief, it is a matter of 
applying leg alternately to each side just as the horse pushes off the hind 
leg and brings it underneath himself.  This causes the horse to push off more 
firmly and develop a longer stride.  One simply does that for miles and 
miles, hours and hours, and the walk gradually gets better and better.  Other 
than a longer stride, the only way to pick up speed with a walk is a faster 
cadence, and the above also tends to achieve that.
